The martini is one of history’s most iconic cocktails, from its humble beginnings as a vermouth heavy drink in the 1860s, through the Bond era, into the ‘tini’ madness of the 80s and 90s, and up to present day, where elegance and simplicity rule the day.
Drinking a martini is a very individual experience, and although the ingredients are few, the possibilities are endless. The 19th of June is World Martini Day where you have an excuse to mix your own martini at home. It’s a day to get together with friends, have good conversations and enjoy this classic cocktail.
